Amazing, fresh seafood. Friendly staff (family run) was very nice. Prices weren't too bad either. I would definitely visit again.

The food was awesome and the staff were friendly. However a little over priced and the flys were annoying. There are far better places to eat at further up the street. Not so expensive

Food was phenomenal, we ordered the swordfish dinner and mushroom ravioli, both were fantastic. Our server offered a good wine pairing for dinner as well. I would definitely recommend. In a great location in the older part of town, which is much quieter than the newer part.

Pizza is always good when in Italy but the pasta is better. I had the Spaghetti with seafood and it was delicious. Service at the restaurant was prompt and polite.

Staff were very friendly, and the food was amazing. Kids ate all of their gnocchi too (which I stole some of- it was delicious). Would definitely recommend :-)

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel. The staff at the hotel called ahead and booked a table outside for us.

I have tried "green pasta" with crab and it was one of the best dishes I have ever had and my partner had pizza and it was super delicious. I highly recommend it. They are very cheerful and welcoming and they do the food with so much love :)

We were in Italy over a couple weeks and the meal we had here was one of the best we experienced. The pesto lasagna and the gnocchi were absolutely fantastic. If you are in Monterosso, eat here.
